Freie Medienkunsträume und KuratorInnen in Berlin: Ein Offener Präsentationsabend
Freie Medienkunsträume und KuratorInnen in Berlin: Ein Offener Präsentationsabend
Während der letzten Meetings des reSource Netzwerks für freie Medienkunsträume und KuratorInnen in Berlin gab es eine interessante Debatte darüber, wie sich die Mitglieder des Netzwerks (und alle anderen Interessierten) etwas näher kennenlernen und einen tieferen Eindruck in kuratorischen Themen, Projekte und Organisationsformen bekommen könnten. So entstand die Idee eines Offenen Präsentationsabends, bei dem Projekte, Inspirationen und künftige Themen vorgestellt werden sollen. SUPERMARKT freut sich, einen Offenen Präsentationsabend am Mittwoch, den 13. März 2013 ab 18:30 zu organisieren.
Wir freuen uns darauf, die reSource Community bei uns begrüßen zu können. Ziel des Abends soll es sein, Ideen für neue Arbeiten zu teilen und die Möglichkeiten der Zusammenarbeit zu erweitern. Alle VertreterInnen von Medienkunsträumen oder KuratorInnen sind eingeladen, auch wenn sie nicht selbst präsentieren sondern nur zuhören wollen. Ihr wart noch nie bei einem reSource Meeting mit dabei? Kein Problem. Der offene Präsentationsabend ist eine gute Gelegenheit, verschiedene Menschen aus dem Medienkunst-Netzwerk in Berlin kennenzulernen.

Pierre will also speak about the current level of acceptance of media art and some future curatorial plans, as well as ACI’s intention to connect to other institutions in order to promote and present media art more actively beyond the already established ‘hubs’ such as ZKM or festivals like transmediale or Ars Electronica.
Stephen Kovats [r0g media]
Stephen Kovats, director of r0g media, will present a special ‘review’ event of ostranenie festival. ostrenenie93 – the first comprehensive video and new media festival aimed exclusively at the the role that media culture played in the societal transformation process in Eastern and Central Europe opened on 7 Nov 1993 at the Bauhaus, Dessau. Directed by Stephen Kovats, curated together with Inke Arns, and in collaboration with the then newly formed Werkleitz Gesellschaft, the festival helped create one of the first platforms for artistic and cultural dialogue between East and West. It’s 1993 edition premiered perhaps the world’s first ‘internet art work’ HANDSHAKE by the Berlin collective Lux Logis (Barbara Aselmeier, Joachim Blank, Armin Haase, Karl Heinz Jeron) and by default of the times went on in its further editions to trace the catastrophic turbulence of the conflicts that tore Yugoslavia apart. 20 years later, on 7 Nov 2013, a special public review of ostranenie is being planned.
